This is a joke right on HOF or WOF.  Not even Hall of very good.  He’s a great guy, but that’s a big fat no.

 

Now Gore at 16000 yards over

16 years, 19980 all purpose yards and 3rd all time if not a 1st ballot, will get in at the 1st couple of years eligibility.  The only ones with more yards is Emmett, and Sweetness.  There is only 1 NFL RB with over 12,000 rushing yards not in the Hall, and that’s dirty Ricky Waters.

 

It's the Hall of FAME, not Hall of Stats.

 

It's merely another branch of Marketing for an entertainment business.

 

Put him in!

I misread the title and thought this was about the Bills Wall of Fame - and I still voted no.

 

The NFL HALL of Fame? C'mon. That's ridiculous! Some of you posters really need to get some perspective and balance your love of former players versus the reality of who/what they are/were.

This isnt the Fed setting interest rates. This is basically arguing over which actors should have Academy Awards. It's just for fun. So let's have some fun.

It will never happen.  Im guessing you’re just being sarcastic and pulling people’s leg.  He certainly did not transcend the game,  or anything else of note.  He’s a great interesting guy who’s been a backup more than a starter.

 

Dawk, you have to be kidding.

Tell me who, at any position, has made the Hall of Fame as a Career Backup and occasional Bridge QB simply because he's "famous"?

 

I'm all for "having fun" and debating points. But there has to be some merit to it. To use your analogy, you're arguing why you think Rob Schneider should have an Academy Award.

So now that Fitz is hanging them up I have two questions.

 

Who takes his place as capable starting QB in the NFL who jumps around from team to team? Don't know that there is one currently but maybe Minshew can become that guy now that he has left the Jaguars. Jacoby Brissett has a shot. Especially if Watson gets a major suspension.

 

Who is the current equivalent of Fitz at any other position in the league?

Have you never seen Deuce Bigelow?

Greatest non-franchise/journeyman QB...

 

Kurt Warner comes to mind.

 

 

 

Love Fitz though. His roast of Fred Jackson belongs in some type of HOF

 

Warner was only a journeyman until he stepped onto the field.  Once there he proved he was among the best in the NFL.  Fitz was never that.

Perfect wonderlick 

Perfect beard

Perfect high pitched girly scream

 

No doubt.

 

Perfect shirtless flexing at the Bills-Patriots playoff game in the crowd with the fans in 2 degree temps
